Opinion: Will fresh striker injury force Pochettino to dip into the free transfer market?

Last campaign, despite having a superb pre-season and making an appearance in the Premier League, Luke Amos’ dreams came crashing down to earth.

The central midfielder looked as if he would be the next academy prospect to come through the ranks at one minute, but was then ruled out for the season the next.

Tottenham fans will be crossing their fingers and praying that Troy Parrott does not fall the same way as Amos, after the Irish striker was one of the brightest sparks in pre-season this time around.

Parrott scored two against Man City last night in the U23s, but was then forced to withdraw through injury, with Football London journalist Alasdair Gold saying ‘it doesn’t look good’.

If the youngster is out for a while, Spurs will be left with just Harry Kane as their only out-and-out striker in the squad.

While Moura and Son can cover, this may be enough to force Pochettino to dip into the free market for the likes of Fernando Llorente, Mario Balotelli, Daniel Sturridge, or someone entirely different.

Fingers crossed that Parrott is okay!
